Police say they arrested six men believed to have been involved in a spate of robberies in the New Kingston and Half Way Tree areas of St Andrew.
A release from the police said the St. Andrew Central Division strengthened its operational and investigative strategies in recent times which led to the arrest of six males.
The suspects, three of whom are juveniles, were picked up by lawmen in three separate incidents – on Old Hope Road, Half Way Tree Road and New Kingston in St. Andrew – and three cellular phones, handbags and other items were seized.
Two of the males have so far been charged with robbery and aggravation, however, their names are being withheld as all six are to face an Identification Parade in relation to other similar cases that have been under investigation.
Investigators are asking victims of robberies, especially in the New Kingston Area to contact the St. Andrew Central Criminal Investigation Branch at 876-926-8184/5 or 876-926-2551. Additionally, the Police are asking victims to corporate with them in the event they are called to identify the perpetrators.
